and ourselves. >> mike: you've pointed out roe versus wade and there's a certain irony that the same week the first african-american president is being inaugurated for a second terl a term and the anniversary we celebrate your uncle's birth and the 40th anniversary of this massive genside and infa infantcide. and yet we have-- reproductive genocide and that's the lives of the little babies in the womb. the land mine decision of roe versus wade 40 years ago and now we have at least 55 million legal deaths of little babies and so, that is something that would be shocking to my uncle, dr. martin luther king, jr. at the same time, you have the landmark anniversary of the emancipation proclamation that happened on january 1st and then later this year, 50 years of the "i have a dream" speech and so it's almost like a dichotomy. two things going on at once. we're giving lip service to the messages of martin luther king, jr. and yet, doing just the opposite. and so, i want to call america and actually the whole world to remember the apostle of love. the 20th century apostle of love, the black mos

if he is reelected to become a member of that select group of presidents that waded through the quagmires of second terms come and somehow came through relatively unscathed? success in a second term does not imply that there were not failures, or significant stumbles. some even severe during that tenure. but the net impact of that time in office had to be the fulfillment of a significant number of the following measures of success. first, the president must provide defense against foreign or domestic threat. secondly, the president must retain or expand economic, political and/or social opportunities. this becomes the primary challenge that the nation feels secure from military threats. third, the president must be effectively lead congress. since the nation began, there's been a perennial conflict between the executive and legislative branches of government. most presidents will extend their exclusive dance of authority to the utmost. congress, on the other hand, generally seek to limit the president's freedom of action. it's understood, however, that from time to time sett

you, charlie. >> rose: i want to just go to gun control because you waded into this battle. was there a particular thing that set you off, other than the tragedy of 20 innocent children? >> yeah. it was actually-- it was earlier than that. when i began at cnn in january 2010, it was a week after gabby giffords had been shot. and i was completely shocked, not just by what happened to her and the six people who got killed but the fact that after a week of mourning and general chatter about a debate about gun control, nothing happened. so a congresswoman could be nearly murdered, at pointblank range by a deranged man way bunch of firearms and no action was taken to tray to prevent this happening again. and from then on, there was a pattern of these massacres and mass shootings. they came with alarming reg layerity in america and nothing ever got done. i really exploded after the aurora movie theater shooting. because there you had a young man who had acquired four firearms perfectly legally, including one of these ar15 assault rifles. me then got 6,000 rounds of amnition anony

divided washington and washington that is trying to wade through these problems with two very different gun and philosophies, two very different ideas on how to achieve success. lori: the president digging in. you mentioned the philosophy. this proposal being floated about. >> right. this is at three day proposal. three months proposal. excuse me. republicans will vote on it in a few days in the house. it has not gone completely shut down, so we may get at three month extension of the debt ceiling. extending that three months republicans are asking that congress pass a budget to be taken political aim at the u.s. senate because in the u.s. senate they have not passed a budget in a few years. with that they get democrats on the record and the senate with a budget which is something that had been hoping to do politically. they don't have any spending cuts as part of this. another part of this is that congress will get paid if they don't pass a budget. is knows that argument. there will be having budget fights every few months. >> something to look for too. thank you. melissa: just attendi

's funny. yesterday, of course, they were marking the anniversary of roe v. wade. i was walking through this liberal city that i didn't know very well which i've come to like in the few days i've been here. i was walking through and there was a pro-life demonstration there. there was a smattering of people in the middle of pioneer square. not a big number of people there. i thought how ironic that tomorrow we're going to be inaugurating a president who has, again, john pointed out, elected by the liberals in this country who came out and really -- a lot of them very disappointed with his first term to be frank as we know. but who came out and voted and re-elected him. here i am in portland. liberal city that the sort of pro-life march. and rally. i went and stlood and listened to them. i felt like that was yesterday's america. you point out that people are watching current tv. this, for us, is also the symmetry of our year with politically direct coverage. we started out the very beginning covering the republican debates. we didn't know who the president would be running against. here w
